Learning for Life

Town End Junior School

Our Learning Journey


At Town End Junior School we have embraced the changes

in the National Curriculum

National Curriculum 2014

The organisation of our curriculum reflects new expectations and changes to areas of learning. It provides a broad and balanced subject knowledge, and prepares pupils by giving them lots of opportunities and experiences to prepare them for life in Modern Britain; through developing pupils’ independent learning and enquiry skills. 

Our creative topic afternoons, will see a greater blend of subjects with pupils learning a wider set of skills, aiming to further develop the 5 R’s of ‘Learning to Learn’ - being resilience, taking responsibility, effective reasoning, being able to reflect and being resourceful. 

 Some subjects like PE and French will be taught as discreet lessons and are not always able to be a taught within a topic but links are made where possible.

Teaching of Religious Education follows the

Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.

Within RE lessons, as well as in other subjects where relevant, pupils are taught about British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of others with different faiths and beliefs. 

See below for specific learning areas of the National Curriculum.

Each area is broken down into a 2 year cycle to reflect our current school organisation of mixed year classes. No child will repeat a Learning Challenge but will embed similar skills at different levels through a variety of learning challenges.
